Description

Welcome home to the Gaillard-Bennett House, Circa 1801. This home has been meticulously restored to its original glory. ''You can't find another property like this one in Charleston, '' states Preservation Architect Glenn Keyes. The Federal style main house is approximately 9400 square feet. Along with the main house is a restored former kitchen house, carriage house and a reconstructed tack house containing all the mechanicals for the property. The 1.25 acre property has expansive gardens, a newly built pool house, salt water gunite pool all meticulously maintained. Walk up the elegant stone double staircase where you are greeted by one of the most outstanding homes in Charleston. The main drawing room and dining room feature some of the finest examples of restoration of the decorative plasterer's art. The plaster restoration work on the cornices, fireplaces, over the mantels and ceiling medallions are the most exquisite in the city. The meticulous restoration work took 2 1/2 years to complete. While the house is impressive from the minute you walk in the extraordinary thing is how comfortable it is to live in. There are a total of 12 fireplaces in the Main House to enjoy a relaxing evening. This unique property has been reassembled to create the original urban plantation. The 1.25 acre property includes the Main House 9345 sq feet, the kitchen house (4 bedrooms 2 1/2 baths), the carriage house (2 bedrooms, 2 baths) which represents an additional 3922 square feet. The total heated and cooled space is 13,267 square feet. The additional auxiliary buildings are #40 and #42 Gadsden under two separate tax map numbers. The easement on the property does not allow any of the parcels to be sold maintaining the integrity of the original plat of the property. To enhance livability and comfort the owners added an energy efficient Geo Thermal HVAC system with 36 underground wells on the property. The condensers, electric connections, meters and overhead lines have all been hidden. Quiet enjoyment on the property. The surrounding one acre garden is well planned to create a tranquil place of relaxation or entertainment. Designed by local landscape architect Sheila Wertimer, the gardens are based on period examples and the Pool House gives a modern feel.
